I have teens, so they kind-of, sort-of dress up, but not like the little ones y'all have. What are your children dressing up as? Pictures?

This year, my son decided to dress up as John McCain. He lucked out and found a mask yesterday and put the rest of his outfit together.

I found this pin, which adds a nice touch:

Lil' Mitchie is Snow White. I had to alter her costume :) (I'm crafty so it helps.)

We took her to Boo at the Zoo we have here and are letting her go to the church up the road for Trunk or Treat that they have every year.

Mitchie, your daughter is adorable!

The only time I got crafty with costumes was when my children were toddlers. We lived in Miami, and I found two costume ideas in the magazine Family Fun. My daughter was a flower, and my son was a bumblebee. Apparently the costumes were meant for those residing in the northern states because the base was sweat pants and shirts. My kids nearly died from the heat when we went to a play date/party at the church. It must have been in the 80's. But they were so cute, and I was tremendously proud of myself.

Yikes, that is scary!! :teehee:


My daughter wants to be a black cat this year so I knit her some kitty ears and a tail, and, my son wants to be a ghost...can ya get any easier than that?? lol...And, I found a sheet at Wal-Mart for 4 bucks :happydance:

Will hopefully have pics on Halloween night, last year the pics didn't really turn out...I have no idea why pics never turn out very well at my mom and dad's house, maybe it has something to do with their ghosts...lol

For a teenage girl, the coolest idea I've heard was an undead cheerleader.

My five year old boy has a pirate costume (with dreadlocks for hair from Pirates of the Caribbean). Not sure if we're going to dress up our nine month old, but only because we haven't found one in her size. If I found a costume that was too cute for words I would buy it.

Lil' Mitchie's 1st Halloween costume was a knitted/crocheted winnie the pooh that my MIL and SIL made for her. It was big enough that she got 2 yrs of wear out of it.

My dd is going to be a fairy princess, with a long gauzy dress that reaches the floor and some wings. It's not really appropriate for these cold temps, but she'll be wearing clothes under it, and her pink "fur" coat over it. She's been saying for a year she would be Snow White (remembered all year, which is amazing since she's only 4), but when she saw the wings on this other costume, well it was love.

No pics yet, but will post them when I get them.

My 10-year-old DD is going as a gothic version of Raggedy Anne, IF she can get out of ballet class without her ballet teacher having a hissy fit.

Grant (6) is going as Batman. Jared (3) is Mr. Incredible. Bryce (1) is a penguin. The older boys picked out their costumes at Target. I picked out Bryce's at the grocery store. Yeah, the GROCERY store! I was wandering through the seasonal aisle on my way out and saw a rack of costumes that looked cute. They only had a few that looked to fit him and I fell in love with the penguin. It said it was a few sizes too big, but it looked okay. I got it home and realized it was mis-marked and was too small. I took it back and found another one that was mis-marked a different size, but it was his size! So yeah, he's a penguin!

Morgan (12) is going as a goth something or other girl- she's wearing a purple and black corset dress we bought in Camden when we went to London with leggings and a turtleneck. Step-daddy dearest minored in theater, has more makeup than I do, and will do up her face.

Declan (5) will be a fireman again this year. He loves it- and we just had a field trip to the fire station last Friday so his interest is renewed (and he has a Jr. Fire Chief hat from the field trip- very handy since the helmet to his costume had broken)

I love all your pictures! Halloween is so much fun! :)

Apparently the costumes were meant for those residing in the northern states because the base was sweat pants and shirts.

Nathalie this is so funny! For us sweat pants were not enough... we needed to wear a snowsuit under our costume to go treat or treating (we lived in a little town up north, and we had snow on Halloween). Yup, wearing a snowsuit, hat, mittens and winter boots kind of ruin the effect when you're supposed to be a princess! :lol:

Awww...you poor thing! I lived in Colorado when I was little, and I do remember those cold trick-or-treating evenings!

I'll change the title of this thread on Halloween so others will post pictures too.

My 10yo is going as Indiana Jones and my 4yo is going as a LEGO.
I really wanted them to go as Adam & Jamie from Mythbusters (the 4yo would have been Jamie) but my 10yo wouldn't go for it.

My oldest son will be a football player and the youngest will be a water boy (we have a BIG game that night.) Several surrounding schools are moving their 10/31 games to 10/30 to accommodate T or T and to come to see our game. :woohoo:

My son wouldn't pose for me. He painted a box to look like a milk carton and cut out a circle to put his face in around which was painted "Have you seen me?" So I just took a picture of thebox. He went to a party at a friends house and then trick or treating but didn't get any candy. Then I dropped my camera and the digital screen broke but it still took pictures.

I think the cutest costume I saw at my house was a mousetrap. It was a homemade costume and darling!

Great pictures!

My charges dressed up as a turtle & lobster -- very cute!

I had to dress up for my church's carnival, deciding Friday morning to go as a construction worker -- quick & easy!

That night I saw some wonderful costumes! A brother & sister dressed up as Charlie & Sally Brown -- he had his head shaved just for the event! A little girl won first place for her age group -- she was celery! Her body & hair was covered in green body paint, she wore a green outfit & had a couple of stalks of celery tied into her ponytail. On her forehead was the word "celery". Very Cute! A family came as pirates, including the boat, and won for their age group.

I had so much fun!

:yay: aww they are all just too cute!!

I never made it back here to post my son's picture. Still don't know what he was and this was the first year I did face makeup...the first time was scary enough so I had to re-do it before he accepted it :rofl:

Also a picture of Roo's dress as she walked away...I don't know why but I just love that picture. Also, my son has decided that he doesn't like getting his picture taken, so I gotta catch him on the go

I thought posted to this thread
my 10 yo dressed up as Mrs Lovette
complete with a basket she said was full of meat pies (but had her treats instead)
my 13yo was a disgruntled teenager:cool:
complete with cropped length hooded sweatshirt, tight jeans, and a couple layered shirts
oh wait, that is what she wore to SCHOOL that day:teehee:
maybe that is why her mother would not let her go trick or treating for candy, just as escort to baby sis (mother being ME)
We went to a "harvest celebration" put on by a local church that does not allow Halloween
this is how they help the kids not feel left out
my kids had a BLAST
playing carny type games
they won chips, candy, toys and soda
had fun, it was good

We found this costume for our granddaughter at Burlington Coat Factory in Ohio. She's holding the DVD case for her favorite movie, Surf's Up, which was the inspiration for the costume. LOL!

Mine had a football game so I guess she was dressed as a cheerleader. And I was the cheerleader's mom. We were very convincing.
